Cristiano Ronaldo ready for Real Madrid return - Zinedine Zidane

3. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp earns £7m a year

- Real Madrid and APOEL Nicosia's only previous encounter was in the quarter-finals of the 2011-12 Champions League.

Then there was the sale of Mariano to Lyon, with the 24 year old striker already scoring four goals.

Superstar Ronaldo looks set to return to the starting line-up tonight — his first club game since receiving a five-match ban after his red card in the Spanish Super Cup final. And there are even those who have taken his side in the current tax case against him.

When he's good, there's no doubt that Bale is very good indeed, and he has been single-handedly responsible for winning many matches and scoring many memorable goals during his time in Spain - none more so than the remarkable solo effort to net a late Copa del Rey final victor against Barcelona in 2014.

Boss Zidane has previously praised the youngster's left foot, rather than his legs, with Asensio insisting the Frenchman had compared him to Lionel Messi.

Meanwhile Dortmund has not had so much upset though they got their first drop of points in a goalless draw during their Bundesliga match on Saturday.

The Reds' backline remains unconvincing despite Matip's continued improvement, but they should have enough to get through a fairly comfortable group. He said, "Varane is doing well, has recovered and is back with us".

He will also have fond memories of playing against the Spanish defender Jesus Rueda who will be at the heart of the minnows' defence.

Back-to-back victor Zidane once again has history in his sights as he aims to become the first manager in the history of the European Cup to win the continent's showpiece spectacle three times on the spin.

They were also buoyed by Barcelona's problems: losing Neymar and failing to sign Philippe Coutinho.

The news was confirmed in a club statement which confirmed that former youth-team centre-forward Borja Mayoral, 20, was included to cover the absence of Karim Benzema, who faces a month on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

That's another reason for being glad to see Ronaldo's return.

Ronaldo hit top form at the business end of last season to fire Real to a Liga and Champions League double and was allowed to report back later than his team mates for pre-season training.
